The Only Product I Wear On Makeup-Free Days

Joanna Fleming

This little trick of mine is almost guaranteed to banish ‘you look tired’ comments from your life. Do other people insist on asking if something’s wrong when you’re bare-faced? Come on people, haven’t you ever seen a pale person before?! Give us a break.

With the help of a single product, I’ve managed to get away with going makeup-free without being questioned. Say hello to Clarins Beauty Flash Balm. This product is so underrated in my opinion.

What’s So Good About Beauty Flash Balm?

– Imparts both immediate & long-lasting radiance to the skin

– Firms & helps minimise the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles

– Helps to smooth & soften textural irregularities like dry patches

– Diminishes signs of fatigue from the skin, evening the complexion

– Gives a slight airbrushed finish to bare skin

– Works excellently as a makeup primer for a flawless finish

– Has a very lightweight, comfortable creamy texture

What’s Everyone Saying?

★★★★★ In love already! – Kathryn

“Only been using for a few days and I already love it! Leaves my face feeling so fresh! Perfect primer for my liquid foundation. I was using another popular primer but wasn’t seeing good results after applying the foundation. So glad I read all these positive reviews on this miracle balm to convince me to purchase! Will be buying again!”

★★★★★ Absolute must-have Amy

“If I was stranded on a desert island and could only have one thing… at least I’d die pretty. This cream just makes you look better. I can’t even pinpoint what it is, but I can tell the difference when I don’t use it before applying my makeup.”

★★★★★ I LOVE this product as a primer – Janaya

“Without it, my foundation looks chalky and my skin seems to lack that glow that it has when I use Beauty Flash Balm underneath. I put on the balm and then the foundation on literally straight after while the skin is still damp. It is an amazing product, if you haven’t tried it- do!”
